Personal Quote:

(On his first role in The Cosby Show (1984)) I got on the show after begging the casting person to see me. We did the episode, I told all my friends it was coming on, and then they cut me out at the last minute. I was furious. So the next day, I went to Mr. Cosby's dressing room and asked him why I got cut out. He didn't seem to appreciate that too much. I never got back on the show again. See more »

Was in Ashanti's first video, Foolish. See more »
